I have been practicing psychotherapy over video calls for several years. It is a new field that is developing to meet new and different client needs, and has proved to be safe, confidential and highly effective.
My Skype clients choose this methodology for several reasons: some live in remote areas, others live in areas where somatic therapy and neuropsychology aren't common or developed, others live away from home, in countries where they have a hard time finding a therapist who speaks English. Some of my clients travel frequently and it serves them to be able to commit to treatment without their job suffering. Others struggle to leave the house, and Skype therapy allows them to start treatment without the added stress of traveling to an office. Finally, since I work on a sliding scale, some people choose this form of therapy because they are able to afford it without it being a big stressor on their finances.
If your are interested in trying therapy over Skype, contact me so we can set up a trial appointment.
